The community is demanding that something changes. Dozens have approached ABC15 in Wittmann, describing their experiences with the intersection.
The biggest complaint is that the speed drops very quickly leading up to the Center Street and Grand Avenue intersection.
"You got... 200 yards, 300 yards and the speed limit drops from 65 miles an hour to 45," explained Bridget Ewer.
Ewer explains that it takes semi-trucks much longer to stop their massive hauls when the light changes. She said she has watched many go right through it; some honking to warn drivers.
Ewer has lived in Wittmann for more than a decade. For the past three years, she said - she has sent emails and made calls to ADOT asking for a sign that gives drivers a 55 mph sign to warn them of the drop in speed.
ABC15 reached out to ADOT about the possibility of adding 55 mph signs in the area. An ADOT spokesperson said a traffic engineer visited the intersection on Friday to assess the situation. Here's their response:
Our findings from this visit conclude that ADOT is meeting all recognized national safety standards, particularly those outlined in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (called the MUTCD). The MUTCD says that with a reduction of 20 mph, a sign is required indicating "reduced speed ahead." Those signs are in place in both directions on US 60 in this area.
However, they did tell us that they plan on sending a regional engineers out to the intersection to assess it.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office said the highway is maintained by ADOT. They understand residents have been vocal with the State of Arizona, but modifications to the area are not in sight.
Ewer said that her hope is that they add that 55 mph sign in or adding more deputies or troopers to force drivers to slow down.
To Ewer and dozens of residents, they want something to change.
